GU Energy Labs began with the effort of Dr. Vaughan more than 20 years ago to create the first energy gel for his daughter. An ultra-marathoner, she wanted to reach her peak performance, but the only choice at the time was an energy bar gut bomb, full of unnecessary ingredients that caused bloating, diverted oxygen rich blood from the muscles, and ultimately limited her performance. Dr. Vaughan’s revolutionary energy gel created an alternative food that housed only the critical carbohydrates for energy and essential amino acids for muscles support. This gooey miracle food, which the body could absorb in seconds, was aptly named GU Energy Gel. And so GU was born.
Since then, GU Energy Labs has continued to use the latest scientific research to create and tweak recipes to answer three simple questions: what to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat. This innovative, driven focus has expanded their brand to include products that solve the body’s need for optimum hydration and effective recovery. GU boasts the widest variety, best tasting, and most nutrient rich hydration, energy, and recovery products on the market today. The building blocks of peak performance are simple, and GU has distilled them to their basic forms, so you can go further, get faster, and feel better doing it. GU for it.
